This is my blog about my adventures in long-distance backpacking, ultra-marathon running, sarcasm, and maybe some economics. This other site is my academic economics site.
OMG -- that's crazy. Why not keep hiking NE through the Los Padres? You could make it to San Luis Obisbo, then maybe along the cost and do the section from Paso Robles to Big Sur. Then to Pinnacles National Monument. Maybe possible to link public lands and some roads to points north. A coastal crest hike.
